Candida Cleanse: Day 2

Yesterday I *officially* started on the no-fructose programme. I did have a miniscule scraping of honey and three dried banana chips, which combined to make me bloat. I feel like I’m starting to make progress, being able to pinpoint the cause of my woes with more accuracy. And I feel great – clearer head, clearer skin (not much, but still), energy and all that jazz! There’s a general sense of well-being in our home today.

I found a product online which I am very keen to try. It’s called Candidex and it’s available through a website called Nutrineeds. My sister introduced me to this site because they offer online correspondence training in nutritional counselling. I am so excited about that! Next year I will definitely be studying nutrition through these folks, and finally be in a position to help people.

Under the weather

Despite eating no carbs, drinking no alcohol, completely eschewing all processed foods, and focusing on organic and healthy choices, I am bloated, constipated and sore. My skin is terrible – I look like a wrinkle-faced teenager who’s just hit puberty! My joints ache and I’m exhausted. My hair is dull and lifeless. I am utterly despondent – my so-called SCD lifestyle miracle is not helping me right now, and neither is the two grand’s worth of supplements in my medicine cabinet. Despite working out six days a week (cardio AND weights), in moderation, and getting enough sleep, I have no energy, no motivation. I am focusing on cultivating a more joyful attitude to life, and today, it’s not happening. I want to be svelte and unbloated. I want clear skin, bright eyes, and shiny hair. I want energy, passion and zest for life.

I want health.

If this isn’t the way to get it, what in the world is?

Do you get your 14-a-day?

Get your 5-a-day (or more!) the easy way with GNLD's patented Carotenoid Complex.

Did you know that people who get enough carotenoids in their diet every day are easy to spot. Their lives are characterised by:

  • Reduced likelihood of cancer because of an increased protection from cell damage.
  • Improved recovery time after illness.
  • Far lower incidence of cataracts.
  • Enhanced immunity which results in fewer illnesses and infections.
  • Reduced LDL cholesterol means a lower incidence of heart disease.
  • Improved recovery from heart-related complications if they occur.
  • Average increase in lifespan.

Fantastic! Where can I get carotenoids?

Carotenoids are found in the yellow, red and orange foods in our diet, and in dark green leafy vegetables like Spinach. However, in order to get the quantity of good quality carotenoids from our diet alone, scientists tell us we’d have to be eating as many as 14 servings a day of these foods.

What can be done about that?
Boost immunity by 37% in just 20 days with GNLD's patented Carotenoid ComplexSupplementing our diets with good quality, high-potency wholefood sources of carotenoids is the only solution to achieve optimal health. GNLD’s Carotenoid Complex is a world-leader. In an independent study conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), supplementing an adult diet with GNLD’s patented Carotenoid Complex for just 20 days improved immunity by an average of 37%!

Curb oxidation damage to cells by 44% with GNLD's patented Carotenoid COmplex

Furthermore, GNLD’s Carotenoid Complex has been shown to curb oxidation damage to cells by 44%.
(Study presented at experimental meeting of Biologists, Washington DC, 1996)

The USDA report also demonstrated a 20% boost in natural killer cells, your first line of defence against cancer, and a marked decrease in LDL cholesterol, leading to improved heart health.

What is oxidation damage and why should I be concerned?

In an article posted recently on WebMD, researcher Jeffrey Blumberg, PhD, professor of nutrition at Tufts University in Boston explained the process of oxidation. ”Oxidation is a very natural process that happens during normal cellular functions,” he said. However, this process has it’s flaws. While the body usuallymetabolises oxygen very efficiently, up to 2% of cells get damaged during the process and turn into free radicals. The term “free radical” describes a molecule that is missing a critical component. This sends it on a destructive rampage to pair with another molecule and find that component. Then any molecule that can potentially meet the need is targeted.

The problem with free radical damage is that cells aren’t simply killed in order to replace the missing molecule. If this were the case, the human body is highly adept at replacing damaged cells and could easily make a new one. The targeted cell is often injured, damaging the DNA, and creating a breeding ground for disease. When the cell is damaged in this way it becomes mutated, and grows – often quickly. As a result, the body’s immunity is compromised and the individual becomes much more susceptible to infection, illness, immune disorders and cancer.

Daily Cruciferous Plus: your first line of defence against cancer

Cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and cress are rich in cancer-fighting properties.

Cruciferous vegetables (also known as Brassicaceae) include cauliflower, cress, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli and similar green leaf vegetables. They derive their name from the shape of their flowers, whose four petals form a cross, or crucifix. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have discovered that 3,3?-diindolylmethane in these vegetables is a strong protector against prostatecancer. Even though the American Cancer Society advises adults to eat at least one serving of antioxidant cruciferous vegetables every day, most of us only eat one serving a week, if that.

Active elements in cruciferous vegetables

  • support healthy breast and prostate tissue;
  • maintain health levels of hormones;
  • support healthy tissue growth throughout the body (inhibiting the action of cancer cells).

Ick! Brussels Sprouts! How can I get enough cruciferous to protect me from cancer, without eating food I don’t like every day?

GNLD's Cruciferous Plus provides the complete phytonutrient profile of an optimal serving of cruciferous vegetables.
